"I am totally in love with his book!!" Fran Zoch, LSoR
"I am in love. That is my simple and final reaction to Then He Happened by Claudia Burgoa. She literally ripped my heart out and healed it in the same stroke. The story was heart breakingly beautiful." PP's Bookshelf

From the Author
Okay, he's hot, I get it. Tall,mind-blowing body and handsome. And he isn't a soulless, rich demon likeCharlie made him out to be.
But does he have to be funny?
Why can't he be a boring,awkward nerd?
The fact that he can listen tome talking with attention is making it ridiculously hard to breathe sometimes. Ifnot every second I'm with him. Sorting through my thoughts is close toimpossible.
We're organizing a wedding. Asmuch as I'm trying to suppress romantic thoughts for this guy I barely know,they keep popping up, like weeds during the rainy season. It's so damnimpossible to cut them all. And they keep appearing out of nowhere.
I try to keep the mood light,but now it's up to auditioning bands. What am I going to do if they play aslow, cheesy song?
Where did he even get bands andDJs to audition?
"What do you do for a living?"I ask as he parks in front of the hotel.
"Does it matter?" he asksbefore opening his door.
No, but where do the luxurycars come from? Last Saturday was a Ferrari. Then, on Sunday a Bugatti, andtoday we're riding in a fancy Audi which model I've never seen before. Now hehas this place set within short notice.
Who are you?
The valet opens my door andhelps me down, but in seconds Jason is next to him taking away my hand from theman. Great, now he's going to see what a sweaty idiot I can be.
"Not really," I answer. "Justasking because you somehow have a place ready with bands who are willing toaudition for you."
"For us," he clarifies."Plus, DJs too."
"Okay, but bands and DJs onsuch short notice?"
He shrugs. "I wish I could takecredit for the setup, but it was Emmeline."
Well, that's new. That littlepiece of information takes care of any romantic thoughts I might be harboring.He has a significant other.
I flash him a questioning look."Your girlfriend?" Wife, partner... thisproves that all the good ones are taken.
"No, my oldest brother'sgirlfriend," he says emphatically.
Somehow the revelation easesthe tension from my back. Why do I care if he's otherwise occupied by abeautiful woman? It's none of my business.
But he's so funny, and thoughtful, and smart. That goofy personality that he keeps hidden underneath theserious guy is breathtaking.
Easy there, girl. He's just an acquaintance helping me withCharlie's latest 'emergency'.
"So, I assume we don't likeEmmeline."
"She's... good for Jack," he states a little thoughtfully."Kind of a busy body, but she gets shit done and doesn't take shit from him."
I snort. "You don't knowanything about her."
"Do too," he says.
"Name one thing you like abouther personally."
"Easy, she makes a meanespresso," he says. "But she's a pain in my ass, and her cats are demons."
"What's wrong with cats?" I saydefensively.
"Nothing, I love cats," hesays. "Hers just ruined my brother's sweet decor."
"Ah, personal vendetta," I joke,but glance at him wondering how this relation affected his own. "Let me guess,she took away your brother's attention."
He bumps my hip lightly withhis, giving me a tight smile. Ding, ding. I hit the jackpot. "The spot for bestfriend is open, in case..." he goes silent, and I love his bashfulness.
I think about Camilla and howit'd be to lose our time together because she finds love. That brings me tothinking about Jason and how much I enjoy being with him. I glance at him again,wondering if in another life where there are no shotgun weddings and I was alittle more put together, we could've been something else.
Thankfully he doesn't look myway, or he'd see how hard I'm blushing.
As we enter the ballroom,there's a small stage where instruments are already set up. In front of thestage, there are two chairs with a small table between them.
"We'll have dinner served fortwo while we enjoy the music," he says.

Jason Spearman doesn't believe in marriage anymore but he loves his family and would do anything for them. Which is how he ends up helping his cousin, Marek, try to find a job, a place to live, and help pay for Marek's wedding because his cousin got the girlfriend pregnant!
So this is how Eileen and Jason ended up meeting - she was somehow "assigned" to help plan her sister's wedding and Jason got roped into not only pay for the wedding but to plan it too. The things these 2 get into while planning the wedding is funny and they interacted like they knew each other for a long time. They understand each other since they are both middle children and have gone through similar situations. When Charlie, Eileen's sister, expects to have an extravagant wedding, honeymoon, and a nice place to live, Jason puts his foot down. Plus he's buying the wedding dress!
At least Eileen and Jason starts to build a relationship while putting together a wedding for a couple of ungrateful and spoiled individuals. I enjoyed how well Eileen and Jason understand each other therefore is able to support each other through all the stress put upon them. Jason "teaches" Eileen that she doesn't have to make everyone happy, especially when it is costing her what she wants. Eileen shows Jason that being in a relationship is not bad at all when it is someone that you care about and understands you.
I enjoyed this book since there are so many laugh out loud moments throughout the whole book. Plus Jason and Eileen are 2 great characters that deserved any happiness that they can find!
Aww this book was just so special.
Oh Eileen, she kept getting her heart broken over and over again. She didn't get it broken by men. No she kept getting it broken by those who should make everything better: Her family. These people were all time jerks. Jerks who expected Eileen to fix everything. She was always put on the back burner, pushed away into the shadow of her sister Charlie. The sister who messed everything up but was never expected to buck up and deal with her mess.
Jason has been hurt so badly by the one he planned to spend the rest of his life with. He was ready for it all, the I do's, the wedding, the happily ever after. But after being jilted he has become the ultimate cynic. There will be no settling down in his life. He'll take his random hook ups and be happy with the life he has been living. Commitment is a big No in Jason's plans.
Suddenly these two are thrust together to plan a shotgun wedding for Eileen's Bridezilla sister Charlie and Jason's cousin Marek. They dive into planning what Charlie has demanded; a perfect wedding. Through all the mayhem thrown at them by the bride and groom as well as Eileen's family they discover they have a lot in common and maybe the way they met was a blessing in disguise because they quickly become fast friends. But could there be something lying beneath the surface that is leading them both past the friendship line and into a territory that neither feels can happen for them. But when lines blur sometimes things become a whole lot clearer.
Loved getting Jason's story and seeing snippets from Jack and Emmeline and of course meeting Eileen. She was one awesome heroine when she finally said enough is enough by the end of the book
